Carolyn Moran ~ Nature-loving, Dog-loving Rockhound
Carolyn Moran - Designer/Creator
I was born in a small town in Northwest Pennsylvania where I was raised on a farm by two loving parents. It is there where I learned to love and appreciate nature in all its glory. Six years ago my husband retired his medical practice, where I worked full time as an x-ray tech. We packed up all of our belongings and moved to Alaska,…a dream of ours for many years. I went from a busy full-time 9-5 office job to living a serene carefree life. What was I going to do with myself? I needed a creative outlet, so I began making jewelry. However, as days went by, and an interest was taken in my creations, selling them was a goal I never set out to do initially. But I find it incredibly motivating and enjoyable. I currently live with my husband and two dogs on the Kenai River in Alaska where I am surrounded by beautiful mountains, soaring eagles, splashing salmon and of course the occasional wandering moose and bear. I draw my inspiration from my surroundings, family and friends. All my life I have loved to create...since childhood when I discovered that my hands and my heart were my best tools! You name it, I probably attempted to create it. But my love of nature together with my love of fashion has inspired me to create this dramatic line of wire wrapped jewelry. I have finally found my niche. I LOVE making these unique treasures.
Adopt the pace of nature: Her secret is patience.
